Tracee Ellis Ross told InStyle magazine, “It’s sort of fascinating to be 45 and single and childless.” But don’t feel sorry for her. The Blackish star added, “Happily single, I should add. Not at home crying about it.”
As for why she chooses to live life on her own, she had this to say:
“These are very big and very personal questions that aren’t anyone’s business but that somehow, like the right to choose, become fodder for public conversation […] Some of the ability to reflect on what I really want comes from pushing up against a society that shames me for not having the expected trappings. I’m very pleased with my existence these days. Have I had to learn to make friends with loneliness? Yes. I think if I were in a relationship, it would be the same.” – Tracee Ellis Ross
Does she have a point?
